corrupted or fixed by working in your little way at boston. narrator: an impressive letter to a young painter and from the distinguished sir joshua reynolds. could he be right? ( harpsichord continues ) john singleton copley loved his country, but he wanted the richer artistic influences of the old world. besides, talk of revolution was everywhere. political contests, he felt, were neither pleasing to an artist nor advantageous to art itself. in 1774, copley left; it would make him a better painter, he thought. sad for him, sad for america: he never returned to his home. at 34, john singleton copley was already one of the best and most popular painters in the american colonies. the young american artist john trumbull said of him, "an elegant-looking man dressed in fine maroon cloth with gold buttons, this dazzling to my unpracticed eye, but his painting, the first i'd ever seen deserving the name, riveted--absorbed my attention and renewed my desires to enter upon such a pursuit." copley had more work than he could do. early in his career, he mastered the popular rococo style: rich te

miller from boston university, we are going to here a scholar and then dr. shive could come in and help us out further, explain exactly what this means in that context. so if we could, james miller from boston university. >> well first of all yin yang isn't just a taoist idea. and it's something that is, that forms the basic cosmological outlook for the whole of the chinese religion. however, it is true to say that it is something; it is a symbol that has particular application in taoism. now the yin and yang respectively mean the shady side of the mountain and the sunny side the mountain. and if we imagine the mountain and you see the - and throughout the course of the day as the sun traverses over the mountain, part of the mountain at one time will be in shade and towards the later time in the day it will be - that part of the mountain will be in the sunlight. and so from this just sort of very, very basic observation we can discern what is for the chinese conciseness the fundamental process that underlies everything that happens in the whole of the universe which is a dynamic process

-- introduced in the united states in the early 1980s. after a few years in practice in boston, i went to an abstract session at one of our national meetings. a young swiss was there, andreas gruentzig. he presented an abstract about putting a balloon catheter inside the heart, inside the arteries of the heart and blowing it up, and showed on an experimental study, that it dramatically opened the artery. i was absolutely astounded by this. it was just an enlightening experience because putting anything into the coronary arteries was forbidden prior to that time. so he was breaking the rules. it is now the largest coronary procedure done, and there are about 500 to 600,000 procedures done per year now, which is significantly more than the number of bypass operations that are done in the united states. the physician threads a catheter through an artery in the arm or the groin until it reaches the coronary arteries-- the same procedure as an angiogram. but then, the physician threads a second balloon-tipped catheter through the first. the balln is inflated, breaking uthe plaque while comp

when i was a kid. i grew up in the suburbs of boston. and we used to go in and visit boston. and sometimes we'd go to the mta, metropolitan transit authority. it's the underground train, electrified. the train rides into two rails, and there's a third rail. and guess what the third rail is for, gang? it's 5,000 volts. that's the source of energy. now the third rail is a little higher. and what the train does, it has a little brush all the time scraping. and so it gets 5,000 volts between that brush and the rail, see? 5,000 volts runs your motor, and these things are motor-driven, electrified rails. well, we kids, we used to do something that, looking back, i'm not so proud of it. but let me tell you what we used to do. we used to get on the rail there. we'd get up in there, okay? we'd be in the platform and the trains are coming by here. now, what we would do-- and we found out that we could get the people on the platform very excited-- we jump down on the pit. and we jump down-- you're not supposed to do that. [laughter] but they got a white line here. but we would do it an
